Good for the pricing.

It was a fair priced room, the microwave is at the front desk and you will have to bring a cooler if you want to keep drink cold. No free WiFi neither. -_- Other than that, everything else was pretty good.

Motel 6, Altoona

Check in was simple. I was looking for an inexpensive place to sleep one night, and Motel 6 filled the bill. I didn't expect many amenities, so I was not disappointed. The bed was comfortable, the place was clean, the shower was fine, and the TV worked well. To check out you just left the key in the room and you were on your way.

Great Find on a Football Weekend

The hotel is right off the interstate and was clean and convenient to Penn State. If you don't want to spend $600 for two nights in State College on a football weekend this is a great find for a last minute trip

Good for a day or two

First off, the staff are great. I was in the area for work and I was not able to check in during normal hours. They were very understanding and made every effort to make sure I had no problem when I did arrive. The room was very clean, but spartan. There are no amenities provided. It would be nice to have a microwave and small fridge, or even a small coffee maker. Other than a tv there is nothing. On the plus side, it is quiet. Some highway noise but thats it. All in all, good for overnight or a couple days at most. Not what one would want for any length of time. Free wifi would be a huge bonus and would have definitely raised my opinion.

Motel 6 at Altoona PA

My first thing I look for is cleaniness and how it smells. The hotel gets a A was very clean and had nice wood floors. The only thing I didn't like about are room is sink is not in bathroom...don't like that. The clerks in the hotel were very friendly and if you needed anything were willing to help. The motel also at a place where shopping, places to eat, coffee, movie house anything you need. We were there for pleasure actually was a funeral but have family here and would stay again...Price we paid for 2-nights was less than we paid for one night at the hotel express and it had same set-up as motel. Thank-you.

Bare-Bones but Clean with Very Accomodating Staff

This was a very basic hotel but the value was great. It was clean and the staff was extremely freindly, competant, and accomodating. Comfortable enough as a place to sleep for the night. We stayed here during a Penn State football weekend and it was 6X cheaper than staying in State College -- definitley worth it!

Below average price. Below average hotel.

The location was convenient for my brother-in-law and I as we were in town for the Penn State football game and all the State College hotels were booked. The price was great, especially considering we didn't spend much time at the hotel. They were in the middle of completely replacing all rooms with brand new everything. If they can keep the price low with brand new rooms, this would be a great place to stay.

Economy lodging

We booked basic, low cost lodging and the facilities were as expected. Smelled strongly of disinfectant and the carpet was gross. It was adequate for a one night stay.
